THE WHOLE AGENDA
Born in Arkansas; moved to Oklahoma in '81. Finished B.S. from Ok. St. U. after years of front line social work; have been mostly teaching since '86 with some social work mixed in. Currently live in Broken Arrow and teach full time in Tulsa (HS Science); work part time at a 'behavioral health' institute (multiple afflictions under age 18 in Tulsa).
Have realized for many, many years that all is not what it seems, and this is where holistic knowledge and spirituality are separated from societal institutionalism and religion. Theories are one thing; experiences speak for themselves. Though I've had a variety of experience and a sense of gnosis, a J-curve of events began to accelerate me through a paradigm shift through the late '90s, and I'm balancing between what I can gain from this and how I may help others in where they are at on their paths.
As a way in organizing a focus on the study involving this variety of esotericism, I've become a member of the Theosophical Society. This is not a religion, but a system that will help you to become a better 'whatever' label you bestow upon yourself to be better.
